Rothenburg Ob Der Tauber

This afternoon I share my latest drawing of this beautiful medieval city shot while travelling along the Romantische Strasse not long ago. The picture is taken just outside the walls of the city.
This piece has been drawn on the inside surface of the cardboard of a frozen pizza package using a white Giotto colored pencil and several ink sepia,grey and black pens.

Pizza Packaging 2

Here another drawing on the cardboard package of a frozen pizza. This time I drew a juniper tree I took a shot of this past summer on a beach in Villasimius.

Pizza Packaging

Today I tried a graphite drawing on a frozen pizza package. The character is a copy from a popular comic strip of a very famous comic artist, with just few minor changes. For the mid and light tones I used a white dry pencil pastel and a burnisher pencil, everything else is made in HB, 2B,4B and 5B graphite pencils. This cardboard packaging has quite a lovely shade of brown.

Narcissus

Today I share my latest soft pastels painting on black colored cardboard. It is my copy of The Narcissus by Caravaggio.
I spent a very good time while painting on it and had lot of fun.

New Work In Progress

I am sleepless tonight so decided to work a bit on the soft pastels painting I'm on these days. Actually it is a copy, I'll write more next times.
Sorry for the bad photo.

Seagull

Today I share my latest watercolor painting which depicts a seagull on a rock staring at the sunset on the bay. A little change in my usual technique and the painting looks much better with no interruptions. Something to think of and to develop further indeed.

Old Street Ink Sketch

Today I share a new ink pen sketch of a street in the old district of the town I live in. In a few days I'm going to watercolorize it.
Good lesson on perspective.

Witchy

Not very long ago I saved this picture from my google+ page for future drawings. So the time has came to ink this cute girl dressed in a witchy way. That made me recall my favorite books by Sir Terry Pratchett.
